Beyonce Sued By Game Developer, Leaves Paris [PHOTOS]
Singer Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are finally leaving Paris after a hectic week that included a photoshoot, numerous meals and a trip to EuroDisney. The couple was spotted leaving Hotel Meurice in Paris to head back to New York earlier today.
Not all is well in Beyonce’s world, as the singer has just been sued. Vulture is reporting that game developer Gate Five is suing Beyoncé Knowles for pulling out of a deal to create a motion-sensing dance video game, seeking more than $100 million for “a bad faith breach of contract so callous that, on what appeared to be a whim, she destroyed Gate Five’s business and drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas.”
The game, titled Starpower: Beyoncé, was a motion-sensing game that would have allowed players to dance along with hits like “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It). The lawsuit, which refers to Jay-Z’s wife as “Ms. Carter,” said she “made an extortionate demand for entirely new compensation terms she wanted. When her maneuver backfired and drove away the financier (who found Ms. Carter too erratic to do business with), she pulled out of the project in breach of the agreement.”
The summons also claims that Beyoncé’s actions were “so unscrupulous that her then manager (who is also her father) renounced them.” The singer severed all business ties with her father, Mathew Knowles, last month.
